School Lunch Peanut Butter Bars

1 1/2 Cup Flour
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup creamy Peanut Butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup quick oats


1/2 cup butter
3 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 T cocoa powder
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In small mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt.  In large mixing bowl, cream together 3/4 cup peanut butter, butter, eggs vanilla until light and fluffy.  Gradually add dry ingredients,  just until incorporated.  Then stir in the oats.  Spread onto a greased 11x15 jelly roll pan.  Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool for 10 min.

The frosting is a two step process.  First, whip the remaining 3/4 cup peanut butter until it becomes lighter in color and fluffy.  Carefully spread the whipped peanut butter over the cookie.  Then add butter to a small sauce pan and melt.  Add milk and cocoa.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Heat just until boiling.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Then gradually add powdered sugar.  Stir until thickened.  Pour over Peanut Butter gently spread.  Cool completely

This is one of my FAVORITE recipes.  It tastes just like the ones they used to serve for school lunch.  I replaced the peanut butter with soy butter in a pan for my niece who is allergic to peanuts.  She didn't like it, but my Dad thought they were lovely. *Melanie*
